Office-Wide Settings: Making Calls

Enable team members to record their calls, and to transfer calls outside of the organization or even internationally.

You'll also see an option to prevent users in this Office from deleting personal calls, recordings, voicemails, transcripts, and other call-related data. If the checkbox is filled, users are able to delete data at their discretion.

Exclude specific Users from these settings by entering their name in the '+ Add User' field. 

Office-Wide Settings: Caller ID 

Enable team members to use the Office number (Main Line) as their caller ID, or allow Users to hide their caller ID (appearing as "unknown") in the Caller ID section.

Office-Wide Settings: Companion Mode

Companion Mode lets Users experience the benefits of Dialpad Everywhere, even when using the Dialpad calling service from a third-party application.

Companion Mode should only be used when taking and receiving Dialpad calls from a client that is not the Dialpad app, such as Microsoft Teams.

Office-Wide Settings: Desk Phones

Turn on the options for team members to self-provision desk phones and to let team members log into any Company desk phone as a guest. You can also set a logo to appear on desk phones (don't worry, this can be changed at any time).

Office-Wide Settings: Powerdialer Wrap-Up Time 

Enable a customizable wrap-up time that sets a delay between when Agents receive their next call using the Powerdialer.

Office-Wide Settings: Help Message

Help messages are sent after a customer responds with "HELP" to an SMS. This response should present a clear way for your customer to get information about you.

HELP messages typically include the business name and description, contact information, fees and details on how to opt-out.

Office Holidays

Set Office holidays in addition to any that Dialpad includes by default for the Office's home country.

Select Create New Holiday, then define the name, date, and if the holiday repeats; holiday routing rules take effect for any holidays observed.
